Infrastructure Week 5 - Row 4

Week for was a great week 4 taking it easy, catching up or working ahead on your Infrastructure quilt.  This week there is a little more prepping and sewing but Christa and I give you a little extra help to get through it.

Infrastructure Row 4 - Fabrics

If you're following along with Benartex Superior Solids, row 4 uses colors: Mint, Lime, Kelly Green, Green and white.  This week I also switched from piecing with a medium dark grey to white 50 wt Aurifil Thread.

Tri-Recs Tool and OLFA Ergonomic Rotary Cutter

Also this week is our first week with triangles.  The Infrastructure pattern is compatible with the Tri-Recs tool and the units are easily cut with a 45mm OLFA rotary cutter.  The pattern templates and the Tri-Recs tool work the exact same way and for more details on using the Tri-Recs tool please visit Christa's website where she's posted some fantastic videos.

Infrastructure Row 4 - cut units

When you're done cutting out all the units for row 4 you will have three differnt colored triangles and white left and right side units, please see image above.  It's important to cut out the side units exactly like the template.  The shape will help you line up the units when piecing the triangles.  A bonus of using solid fabrics is you don't have to worry about right and left side units like you do with a print.

Infrastructure Row 4 - piecing
Just like previous weeks you can chain piece the triangles first sewing one side, pressing, than sewing the other.  This is a very effcient way to piece and you'll be able to complete all the triangles faster by chain piecing.

Infrastructure Row 4 - Sections

When you're done piecing sew the units into sections then assemble the row using those sections.

Infrastructure Row 4

Just like that, row 4 is complete.  This marks the half way point of the quilt top so give yourself a pat on the back you're half way there!

  12. I am sad to say I've had my tri-recs rulers for a very long time and never used them. The infrastructure pattern has changed all that. Also your patterns are awesome.

  14. It's amazing how those triangle points meet up perfectly! They are so sharp! Love when that happens...not for me every time. Great tip to keep the solids for sides.
